Professional Educators of Tennessee understands the critical role of parental involvement in a child’s education and we believe that collaboration between parents and educators creates effective advocates within the community. For Tennessee students to reach their full potential, parents must teach respect, discipline, and a love of learning in their homes while holding their children accountable for their behavior and academic performance, and providing a home atmosphere that is conducive to learning. Public schools must be advocates for meaningful family and parental involvement. We must listen to parents, and help them understand their role in education.


The following links are provided to assist parents and start building bridges. These programs and organizations provide training and education for parents and school staff aimed at building family-school partnerships. Professional Educators of Tennessee does not recommend or endorse the programs or organizations listed below, but provide them as a resource for your reference and review.
